The United States in Congress assembled would finally ratify the Treaty of Paris of September 3, 1783 on January 14, 1784. The federal government’s power to tax the settlers and other inhabitants of the Northwest Territory would be established as of April 15, 1783.
For most Americans, April 15 is tax day, but few realize federal taxation began with the acquisition of the Northwest Territory, which would become the States of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota. If you want to understand taxation in America, you have to be taken back to its roots.
